Why use ASP.NET MVC 4 over just HttpHandlers with JQuery Ajax?
Well, I need to build a small mobile application which will be with one single page only and lots of AJAX calls with JQuery. I love the idea of using a simple HTML 5 page without any page life circle events like Page_Init, Load, etc. It still will be an asp.net page but no form or server controls.I can do all the server work in AJAX, calling asp.net Handlers and it is probably be the faster way.
Will it work?
Is MVC a better approach?
I did a small thing with simple ASHX (handler) file and simple HTML5 page and JQuery and it works great. So why not do the whole application like that? no need to learn MVC, no Razor, not nothing else…
